Caixinha delivers injury update on Rangers 20-year-old, shares return date
By Danny Wright
Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha has stated that Jordan Rossiter will return to action at the beginning of next season.
Rossiter has barely featured for Gers since he was signed by Mark Warburton last summer but is reported by the Daily Record to be back in light training.
The 20-year-old made just six appearances in both the Scottish Premiership and League Cup at the beginning of the campaign but has been out of action since picking up a calf injury in September.
Caixinha also believes that Nico Kranjcar will be able to return from his long-term injury problems around the same period.
“Jordan will only start with us next season,” said the Gers boss, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“We’re preparing to get him ready for then and it’s the same with Niko Kranjcar.”
Rossiter cost Rangers £500,000 when they signed him from Liverpool in July 2016.
He only managed five first-team appearances for the Merseyside club and failed to reach the high potential that was expected of him before his Ibrox switch.
The ex-Liverpool man made his Gers debut in the 3-0 Scottish League cup win against Stranraer in July.
Rangers signed Emerson Hyndman on loan in January to fill the void that Rossiter’s injury had left.
The Bournemouth loanee has become a hit in Glasgow since, scoring four goals and supplying four assists in 15 appearances.
